This is a low fat, not too bad on the calories recipe. Really satisfying, especially on cold days. It can be a meal in itself

    After reading many of the previous comments I made just a few changes: 2 carrots, 2 cloves of garlic, about 1/3 cup chopped onion and I used vegetable broth for the lentils and added red pepper flakes to the spices. This was a very easy dish to prepare and I absolutely loved it!!! This was really an enjoyable meal with toasty french bread sprinkled with Parmesan cheese & basil.

    What a nice little gem!! I was looking for a different way to do up some spinach, this filled the bill. I used orange lentils. Very good and a nice change, I will be making it again and will add an onion and maybe some salsa next time. Thanks for a goodie to go with our chicken! Didn't need anything else! forgot to say I just made half a recipe; it worked out fine.
